Vosne Romanee - The village where the most expensive wine in the world comes from, Romanee Conti of course!..
Here’s a few wines I tasted last night from the same village, from a chap called Henri Audiffred, one is the 1er Cru Reignots, which is a mere few hundred metres away from the Romanee Conti vineyard..
Vosne wines have a reputation for being both powerful and elegant at the same time. Theres sometimes a “Vosne Spice” people describe, its like 5 spice, nutmeg, cloves etc..
The Vosne Romanee on the left had a sensational nose, a bit like parma violets and tulips amongst a load of vivid berries! I could have smelled this all day..
My favourite of these three was the mighty 1er Cru Reignots. I really loved the minerality of this wine, layer and layers of intense fruit with this mineral grip knitting it all together. Very very serious wines that really do leave you lost for words! These are wines that are still in barrel so I can’t imagine how lovely they will be once they’re released and have some age! Many thanks to @burgundyportfolio for putting on this great tasting.
